Re: Post-baby exercise at home?
I don't have a recommendation for a machine (they are so
expensive that Ihave never invested) but 2 excercise tapes that
Gin Miller & Reebok Step Aerobics (requires investment in a
step)-- intense moves, basic, and hi-intensity are the that I
own -- each are about $10 on amazon and I love them!
Tae Bo (as in the info mercials). Also great, don't need any
additional gear but can be hard on the joints. The 15 minute
workout is great -- I often do it 2x in a row if I am pushed for
time and cna't do the basic workout.
A third one that I highly recommend if you have a small enough
baby: Postnatal Fitness for Mom & Baby (on VHS & DVD)... AWESOME
if you have a little one that you can put in a front pack.
Check out www.FreyaFitness.com...
If joining a gym is a possibility, you (or anyone from this
list) can try a trial membership at Lakeridge Athletic Club in
El Sobrante (which has child care)and open until 10 pm. Send me
an email. Good Luck!
Your message caught my eye, because I recently produced a
Postnatal Exercise for Mom & Baby Video that sounds perfect for
you. The video has two segments. The first segment provides 8
minutes of pelvic floor and abdominal exercises to help mom get
those overly stretched muscles back into shape (this is
especially great for the first 6 weeks posptarum). The second
segment provides a full-body cardio workout that you can do
with your baby (using a front carrier) or without your baby.
So, if your baby doesn't sleep at the same time as your older
child, you can still get a workout in, by including your baby.
It's fun for the baby as well - he/she will enjoy being moved
to the music and also watching the moms and babies in the
video. I am a certified fitness instructor with specialty
training in pre- and postnatal exercise and have been teaching
exercise for over 8 years. The program comes in VHS and DVD
formats. For more information, see www.freyafitness.com.
To your health!
